Haneda Airport / June 30, 2005

Haneda Airport (HND), formally known as Tokyo International Airport, was opened in 1931. With the completion of the new Narita Airport (NRT) in 1978, Narita took over most of Tokyo's international air traffic, while Haneda was designated to handle Tokyo's domestic air traffic.

Haneda Airport is located about 30 minutes south of central Tokyo. It consists of three terminal buildings: terminal 1 which is mainly used by JAL and its subsidiary airlines, terminal 2 which is mainly used by ANA and its subsidiary airlines and the international terminal which is used by a small number of international flights.

Haneda is the world's fourth busiest airport, handling 63 million passengers a year, far surpassing Narita, where 27 million passengers arrive and depart annually.
